I heard Third Eye Blind on the classic rock station the other day. It made me feel very old and I'm not even 35.

Coldplay sucks, but hearing that the album is 20 years old is a kick in the nuts, which is preferable to listening to Coldplay.

I have a distinct memory of listening to this album in the dorm room of a guy I thought was hot.   I borrowed the CD even though I hated it so I had an excuse to see him again.  Never got to bone him, and end up having the song "Yellow" stuck in my head for two weeks.  Lose/lose situation.

Rapmaster2000: People talk about the 90s like it was some golden age of music, but that's because they forgot how much Gin Blossoms there was on the radio.


Oh, there was absolute garbage in that decade....

But in great part record companies struggled to figure out what people really wanted and as a result put out much more diverse music than they typically would have.

And yes, Coldplay is to rock and roll what Sting solo after "Dream of the Blue Turtles" is to rock.  It's the kinda shiat that has the date home on time, unmolested and with a little extra package of peanut butter crackers in the jacket pocket as a surprise the next day.

No one ever had to explain to their kids that they came into being after getting all hot and bothered at a Coldplay concert.

Rapmaster2000: Coronavirus should have taught you that life is too short for Coldplay.


The Jack White out front should have told you?

Chris Martin spent most of that 20 years drowning in pussy-

scented candles.

White Stripes De Stijl is also 20 years old.  Coronavirus should have taught you that life is too short for Coldplay.
